The second-leading career rusher in the history of the Jefferson City Jays signed a letter of intent Friday morning to play football at the University of Arkansas.

Due to the winter weather, Walker missed the National Signing Day event scheduled for Wednesday in the Jays’ training room. But he was photographed signing his letter of intent at home and sent it along to comply with NCAA rules.

Friday’s signing was merely a formality.
